's what people want. >> we can't talk about the president's strategy. he has to stay cool. if jim lehrer doesn't do it, if the moderator doesn't do, it then the president may have to step in, depending on how romney performs. but if romney doesn't really make the case strongly, the president doesn't necessarily have to jump on him. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer. >> he can say at the end he didn't answer the question. >> let lehrer try it. >> but i think the obama campaign is leery of being -- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best defense? >> good offense. >> i would recommend the president. why did the cavalry leave the fort to fight the indians? do you know why? >> why. >> they're cavalry. thank you. >>> coming up, we have a new scoreboard. not like in the old days but spinners will be there. let's watch the power of the tweeter, the twitter, what's going to happen? we'll have people talking about real life, in time, while it's actually happening telling us who's winning this thing and which candidate did a better job framing the argume

. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in deb

for him to do a really good job in my opinion. >> i think this debate format was an interesting one. jim lehrer got a lot of heat for it, but to me this was a debate where you got to hear both candidates have more of a conversation and talk back and forth, which as a voter i like seeing something like that. >> i sort of liked the job that jim lehrer, i liked the job he did because he let him go at it a little bit and it showed a lot. if you remember the cnn disaster that they had a while ago and i won't mention who, but somebody kept interrupting, interrupting, you couldn't say a word, it was always interruption, this was almost a better, it was more flowing, and it worked out very well. but the next debate is going to be very tough. i think obama is under a lot of pressure. now as far as jack welch is concerned, you're all sitting around talking about jack welch, a great legend in business, a very smart guy, he's 100% correct, 100% correct. >> wait a second, in terms of the chicago political guys manipulating the numbers? >> how does it go down to 7? there wasn't an economist in the cou

. it is really important that we screen people so they are aware of their condition. ashley: jim, what attracted them and what are you doing from your point of view? >> it is really great. they will be at work. more engaged. more productive. there is a financial incentive. if you can actually bend the cost curve and we think wellness programs can do that. bring down medical costs. reduce claims. ashley: do you provide financial incentives? >> we launched a program. the premise of it is to get the data. get the numbers. we will provide -- it is voluntary. to hundred $50 incentive to get your biometric data so you know what you are dealing with. you know what health issues you have. what donna just described, the program will be utilized to try to affect behaviors. ashley: could a lot of people benefit from this, donna? >> a lot of people could benefit. $300 billion is what it costs the u.s. to treat heart disease every year. building a healthy workforce can reduce cardiovascular disease and stroke. ashley: do you find, jim, that people are reluctant to sign up? they do not want to be doing this i
adding he liked the sesame street character big bird but not at a steep price. take a look. >> i'm s jim, i will stop the subsidy to pbs and other things. i like pbs and big bird, i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> following the statement, big bird fans flocked to twitter and facebook defending the sesame character and some parody accounts popped up, posting spoof photos of big bird and others, some too risky for tv news. the post debate coverage continues on www.myfoxdc.com. click on the fact checker to so how the candidates' claim stack up with the truth. it's on our home page at www.myfoxdc.com. >>> the conflict in syria is on the verge of growing into a crisis. turkey has continued firing at syrian targets. the violence comes after shells from syria hit a turkish border village killing five people. since, they authorized the country's military to conduct cross border operations in syria while turkey's prime minister insists it's not a declaration of war but a deterrent against its neighbor. >>> coming up
from missouri. let's go to the phones and get the callers involved. this is jim in waterbury, connecticut. good morning. go ahead. caller: linda mcmahon it said that chris murphy was not there in congress 90% of the time to make votes on issues. is that a fair accusation? is that just sort of how congress works that -- works now? guest: beat -- host: before we let you go, what is it like there in connecticut now? guest: last time she really bombarded you. it is a pretty bad race, a lot of mudslinging. host: ken rudin? guest: this is a state that they have no business being competitive in. the former chief executive of the world wrestling federation, linda mcmahon, spent $50 million in a big republican year and lost still by 12 points. she got some sort of complete makeover this year? or she is warm and folksy? she is taking chris murphy as someone who is out of touch. i still think that he has a slight lead, but the polls show them as dead even. democrats should definitely worry. this is the one where joe lieberman is retiring. host: new york, trevor, republican. caller: good
deliver him six critical elack torial votes. jim acosta is with him. jim, of course good news for the romney campaign, but what does this mean for the campaign, what changes are you seeing on the road? >> reporter: well, one thing that we have seen over the last several days, the crowds are getting bigger for mitt romney out on the campaign trail. we're at an event in van meter, iowa, chuck grassley is on stage getting the crowd warmed up to hear from the gop nominee. and just before that, josh romney was at the podium and he said what a lot of romney family members and even romney himself has been saying out on the campaign trail, and that is how about that debate last week. they do feel that that debate has energized voters, has also given undecided voters who were sort of looking at both candidates sort of a different look, a new look at mitt romney and they think that isle also a reason why the poll numbers are moving his direction. but we had a chance to listen to a senior romney adviser on the campaign plane heading in to iowa. kevin madden was talking to reporters. and
and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
us now is a big supporter of pulpit freedom sunday, jim garlow senior pastor of skyline weslyan church in san diego. what do you plan on saying today? i'm just curious. to the congregation there. >> i'm going to walk through the various biblical issues in this year's election. i'll talk about candidates that are in support of those various biblical issues and candidates that in opposition to them and urge those in the congregation to vote for those who come mostly in compliance with biblical principles. >> will you be endorsing a specific candidate today as well? >> i probably will. church does not -- the church cannot vote, but i as a pastor did not surrender my freedom of speech and freedom of religion once i was ordained to be a pastor, so i very likely will be announcing who i will be voting for on a number of different elections, state, local, and federal as well. >> are you willing then to lose your tax exempt status? i'm curious why you would speak this way in your church as opposed to maybe outside your church when that wouldn't be such a risk? >> well, i would speak in
debate, candy, what do you take away with that in terms of how both of these candidates reacted to jim? is there anything that you learned from it or that you saw that you'll take into the next one? >> you know, the interesting thing to me is that everybody was talking about jim when it was over, and i paid no attention to him simply because i'm sitting there writing down where i saw holes in their arguments thinking, oh, this would be good, oh, this would be a good follow-up, oh, what happened here? that kind of thing. i wasn't as sort of tuned in. i was in the debate hall, so that's, as you know, kind of a wholly different thing. what i take from it is that they certainly are both going to take whatever time they feel they can get to put their views out. i get it. this is an important debate. i think there are times when the time structures drive people crazy. you know, it's kind of what they agreed on. you know, obviously at some point you need to take control, but i don't think you take control because you can or you should, but i think you take control because you want the convers
about. >> and your responses. i don't believe jim lehr will allow candidates to throw stuff out there, not offer some kind of specifics. so if you try to dance around it, that's going to be a problem. >> still ahead this morning on "starting point" we'll talk more about that. >>> also, take a look at a terrible plane crash. it was intentional crash. scientists were trying to prove if you couldurvive a catastrophe like this. [ woman ] ring. ring. progresso. your soups are so awesomely delicious my husband and i can't stop eating 'em! what's...that... on your head? can curlers! tomato basil, potato with bacon... we've got a lot of empty cans.

ohio. i'm talking about senator rob portman, of course. our jim acosta has called him the debate whisperer. is he the key to romney doing well there? >> well, i think rob portman is a key for any republican doing well because, you know, rob is -- he is the most knowledgeable calming force. he knows how to communicate things extremely well and efficiently without calling names, without being name-calling or without being too bitter. rob portman is very well respected. he's relatively unknown, but what rob did to win the state by just huge numbers for the state of ohio when he ran for u.s. senate was he got out and touched and felt people. he listened. rob is an excellent listener, and i think the candidate going forward that listens to the voters of ohio is the one that's going to end up on top. >> let's look back to 2008 and the election. barack obama won the big counties with the big cities. he won the state by what, just four points, but how can mitt romney turn that around this time? >> well, i mean, i think you make a good point. there's two ohios. there's -- there's five or
if the republicans decide their first mission it can no longer be with senator jim demint. mitch mcconnell said the first priority was to make sure obama was it first term president. there was the possibility of working on different issues. if you have some good progressives reelected -- elizabeth warren -- you have a chance to find partnership on core issues. even something the chamber of commerce signed onto. this country could use an infrastructure bank that would put people back to work and rebuild the infrastructure. with mitt romney, you need somebody to, and that will understand that 47% of americans are not freeloaders but part of a political system and a country that deserves the respect. paul ryan has put forward a budget. another of them have fully explain how that would cut tax rates 20% across the board. what kind of loopholes would they find? that is a tough fight to have in a congress where there is a belief in a fair shot. host: next is a caller from iowa, larry. caller: hi. thank you for taking my call. i watch too often. i have a big problem with republicans. i feel they have
got to believe angry black men are often vigorous and fox news is all powerful that when jim lehrer demoderates a debate a pbs anchor that fox has power over him. so look at the ridiculous nature of what i'm saying. this is in defense of the indefensible, on stub tans president obama was not ready. he was not ready to handle the result of the months of attacking mitt romney. he had been attacking him, calling him a liar, a his campaign. the responsible for the murder of a woman. now unfiltered meeting with mitt romney and they were face to face, that's a difficult position. so ed schultz lied about it, axelrod dishonest and liar. they are pushing a narrative of negative much like the president said he would do if you have nothing to run on you make your opponent someone to run away from to paraphrase. >> silly a couple days ago i was talking to a republic strategist african-american and she was saying that black men sometimes do have to worry about this. whether it be in business or any field. >> why? then that's. >> some white people in our society do react to a strong point of vie
